Many Thanks for Making PulpFest 2017 a Great Success!

Aug 7, 2017 by

Thanks to everyone who made PulpFest 2017 a resounding success. Given that a year ago, the convention was without a home, the PulpFest organizing committee is extremely pleased with the tremendous support that we received from everyone.

Of course we want to thank our regular dealers who have been backing us since we mounted the first PulpFest in 2009. We are also happy about the dealers who were attending the convention for the first time or who were returning after being away for a few years. With 66 dealers in attendance, we set a record for the convention. We hope that every exhibitor had a great show.

We also have to thank all of you who attended the convention as regular members. Without your support, our dealers would have no reason to come to PulpFest. Of course, thank you to all of the usual suspects who attend year after year. Thanks as well to all of those members who came to PulpFest for the first time or who returned after a few years’ absence. The convention’s attendance for this year was 353.

We hope that you’ll all be back next year for PulpFest 2018 and the 47th convening of “Summer’s Great Pulp Con.” Your PulpFest organizing committee is already starting to plan for the convention. We’ll be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War at PulpFest 2018. Also, it just so happens to be the century mark of a certain Grand Master of Science Fiction named Philip José Farmer. As always, expect a great dealers’ room and superb programming from both PulpFest and FarmerCon.
